Leif Jason at Mastermynde Strategy provides a wide range of professional expertise in marketing, eCommerce, web strategy, and more. He has recently developed an online calendar of Comox Valley events that’s crowd-sourced, and community-curated. A key to the success of this community calendar are curators, people with a passion for specific event sectors (e.g. food, sports, music, business, etc).

If you’re interested in being a calendar curator please contact Leif directly via mastermynde.com. A draft is posted at weareyqqcommunitycalendar.ca (see the dropdown menu at “Categories” for all listings).
